ALERT: Florida medical doctor begins "treating patients in relation to high levels of volatile solvents in the blood stream" -- "Tremendous implications"


Local doctor links spill to symptoms, Walton Sun, November 02, 2010:

Rodney D. Soto, medical doctor for the Younger You Institute in Santa Rosa Beach, recently started testing and treating patients in relation to high levels of volatile solvents in the blood stream that he says may be linked to BP's oil spill in the Gulf.

"What I am concerned most about is a long-term effect, that won’t even show up for years, but are going to have tremendous implications in human immune system and hormonal function and brain function,” Soto said.

These compounds (petroleum and dispersants) are liposoluble; meaning they have a “high affinity for fat,” Soto said. ...

“It is not the fat that you would think of, it is the fat tissue in your body; the brain is 70 percent fat and the glands, immune cells, the intestinal tract, thyroid, breast, prostate, the organs and systems. That is why it causes all of these disorders,” Soto said. “That is why it is so significant for children."

Children’s brains and reproductive organs and processes are still forming, which could potentially make their exposure to the petro chemicals even more significant.

    This Doctor is in Destin, Fl. One of the wealthiest places in the state.[think Santa Monica,Ca] It does not help the average person no less the poor. The clinic is for anti-aging, age reversal..ect. I smell profit.

    Read the article for this quote:
    Gail Allen, administrator for the Walton County Health Department, said “I have not heard of this (volatile solvents blood) testing.”

    Another example of the poor response by the Florida Dept. of Health, which is responsible for the County Health Departments. The County Health Departments should be doing blood testing, but no, they're totally clueless.

    What happened the Walton Sun link?

  • Elsewhere

    Leave. Pack your stuff and get out.

    Especially if you have kids. What price do you put on their health? Go. It's not worth staying around in that toxic area.

    On second thought Florida got Bush elected and that other Bush brother moron lives there.
    Lets say the oil spill is over.
    It has been repaired the oil will dissapate.
    Enjoy your life in Florida, please Bush supporters go to Florida and enjoy the beach.
    The beaches are clean and fresh sea food.
    Please go visit, I'll buy dinner
